Consultation for each neurological issue may vary but would usually involve information gathering, thorough clinical examination as well as review of any previous investigations. It is helpful to know where the previous scans and blood tests were done. It is also valuable to have information on previously tried treatments. Often, access to the details of previously tried treatments is pivotal in deciding on choice and dosage of a new treatment.
While Dr Sheikh has a special interest in Botulinum toxin treatments and nerve conduction study/electromyography, he also looks after several other neurological conditions with zest. Notable of these are headache and facial pain disorders (e.g., migraine, cluster headache and trigeminal neuralgia), movement disorders (e.g., Parkinson’s disease, tremor, tics and dystonia), cognitive disorders including dementia (e.g., Alzheimer’s and frontotemporal dementia) and epilepsy.
Dr Phamnguyen also subspecialises in complex epilepsy and epilepsy surgery but eagerly looks after a number of neurological presentations ranging from headache disorders, Parkinson’s disease (and other movement disorders), stroke, vertigo and unexplained symptoms.
